The stone itself made from Irish Blue Limestone was designed by local artist, Iain Cotton who was commissioned to make the first almost identical marker stone outside the steps of Bath Abbey back in 2012. The trail can easily be walked in either direction and some prefer to head south to north with the advantage of the sun on their back. [See more]

Introducing Amanda Patton

Amanda Patton will be leading our 2014 Cotswold Garden Tour and has written this post for us. I’m delighted to be able to tell you that I’ve been working with Cotswold Walks to design a tour of Cotswold gardens for next June.

Because of the huge social changes that took place in the early 20th century, the way people use, and think of, gardens has changed from being a playground for the rich, requiring large teams of gardeners, to something which pretty much everyone would aspire to in some form. The more technical our lives have become, the more we crave connection with nature, even if it’s just growing a window box of herbs. >>> [See more]
